The Michael Thurmond 6 Week Body Makeover Body Type D (Endo-Ecto) is a unique body type as the meal plan closely reflects the Atkins diet. All bodies are not made equal and that's why the meal plans in the Michael Thurman diet vary depending on what type of you have (body types a, b, c or d). D body types are people who have a sluggish metabolism and a lack of adequate lean muscle tissue. Does this sound like you? Eating a higher amount of protein is the key to gaining lean muscle for these types of people. Muscle is what causes your metabolism to burn calories all day long. Most people try to stay away from red meats; however "D" bodies get to eat beef as the components in red meat will accelerate your fat loss. However, because you have a sluggish metabolism, you should stay away from simple carbs such as sweet fruit, sugars and processed grains. Try to focus on eating complex carbs such as sweet potatoes and low sugar fruits like grapefruit and berries.
Here is an example of a meal that you can eat for a female “D” body on the six week body makeover. All of the foods are for the gourmet category of meals.
